I am no one to be trifled with--that is all you ever need know.

   Feb-05-14 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
 
chillowack: <A shadow of his former self.> Right: because Magnus Carlsen--who has just become World Champion at age 23 by a +3 score, has shattered all rating records, is winning tournaments left and right, is firmly at the top of his game, and shows every prospect of storming even ...
 
   Aug-22-12 Alburt vs Kasparov, 1978 (replies)
 
chillowack: Does anyone know what tournament this is from? It says "Ch URS 1978," but according to this page ( http://graeme.50webs.com/chesschamp... ) Alburt didn't actually play in the 1978 USSR Championship (possibly he had already defected to America by that point). So what tournament ...
 
   Aug-08-12 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1935 (replies)
 
chillowack: <Calli: <nendwr> After 41.Rxc6 Ne7 then 42.Rd6 attackS the Bishop and the only move to save it is 46...Nc6 which runs into 43.Rxc6 again!> Actually, after 43.Rc6 bc 44.b7 Black now has the defensive resource 44...Bc7; so the Rxc6 sacrifice is no longer an automatic ...

chillowack: The opinions expressed by <slomarko> above--that Euwe "didn't know how to win" with two pawns up--are surprising. Euwe was a world-class player who had just administered several beatings to one of the greatest players of all time--yet he "didn't know how to win" with a ...
 
   Aug-08-12 Simagin vs Korchnoi, 1960
 
chillowack: I agree, perfidious: it is far from obvious that Black lost on time here.
 
   Sep-22-11 Adams vs D Contin, 1990
 
chillowack: The initiative seemed to swing back and forth like a pendulum in this game: first one side was attacking, then the other; with mistakes occurring on both sides.
 
   Sep-22-11 Jansa vs M Despotovic, 1979
 
chillowack: It was silly for Black to play on so long. Hoping to set up a fortress is one thing, but continuing to push wood 30 moves after you've been beaten (and your evaluation is about -6) is just inconsiderate. I could be wrong about that, though--there may have been factors at play of ...
 
   Sep-17-11 Ponomariov vs Ivanchuk, 2011 (replies)
 
chillowack: Bd5 threatening Nh4
 
   Sep-17-11 Svidler vs Grischuk, 2011 (replies)
 
chillowack: Beautiful.LMS: true!
 
   Sep-15-11 Bronstein vs Tal, 1982 (replies)
 
chillowack: Everett: thanks for that variation.
